What Students Say About the Academy…

“I have really enjoyed the course and learned so much. I know I have much to think about and to practice. You have taught me so much and been always a great encourager, thank you. You’ve never made me feel like it’s too late or that I’m to old or not good enough. Instead, I have felt hopeful and excited. I want to keep writing and honour the Lord with what I believe he’s put in my heart. I’m going to finish the story I have begun. Not sure how it will turn out but if I don’t try I’ll never know. As St. Julie has said, ‘better mistakes than paralysis, it’s your choice’.”

- Juliet (Cornwall)
